Vampire Lounge Returns To The Coffin

Just months ago, Pete Freedman wrote about the reopened Vampire Lounge. Co-owners Jimi Fritz and Matt Story were confident the Harry Hines Boulevard club would succeed, despite thin crowd turnouts for national metal acts and the club's Halloween Bash.

Unfortunately, the club never managed to overcome its problematic location to bring in the kind of crowds that could sustain it. On Monday, the club posted a blog entry announcing its closing on its myspace page. "Vampire has not had enough business to stay open," read the item. "Operating costs are just too high. One slow night can seriously effect your budget. Unfortunately we've had A LOT of slow nights."
